Product Description
Fall Writing: Pretty Peculiar Pumpkin {fall writing, art, and following directions activity}

Your kids are going to love this fun fall activity. It can be used any time during the fall season. Make it near Halloween or even Thanksgiving.

This creative activity allows students to be creative in an artsy way and in their writing, all while they are following written directions.

Students are given a blank pumpkin. They will follow the written directions to create their "Pretty Peculiar Pumpkin"..... wow... they even learn a new vocabulary word too. (Peculiar- strange).

Even though the kids are following directions and the pumpkins will be similar, there will be many differences depending on the colors they choose and where they place their shapes, lines, zigzags, etc.

After creating their pumpkin, students can use the writing paper to write about "How the Pumpkin became so Peculiar...." (Those should be fun and interesting stories!!!)

These will look so neat hanging on a bulletin board or out in the hallway.

Have fun!
